The MS Brissie to the Bay bike ride is a tentpole community event in Brisbane’s bicycling calendar. In fact, the ride is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2020!
While Brissie to the Bay is known for the friendly atmosphere, this ride is more than just a fun day out on the bike; riders raise money to help change the lives of the thousands of Australians living with multiple sclerosis (MS).
This year’s ride will take place on the 14th of June, and will start in Musgrave Park, South Brisbane. The MS Brissie to the Bay bike ride is made up of 5 rides of varying distance to cater for different riding groups and rider abilities!
Riders can choose between the family friendly 10 km ride, the scenic 25 km ride, the classic 50 km ride, the challenging 100 km ride and – just for the anniversary year – a brand new 130 km ride out to the Bayside region.
All of the route options ride through the streets of South Brisbane, heading out towards Wynnum on the Moreton Bay coastline. Along the way you will have a police escort and road marshalling for the safety of the riders.
Funds raised from this event go to a very worthy cause, and will be used by MS Queensland to provide care and support for those who suffer MS.
Brisbane weather in June is usually very mild and stable, making it perfect for a beautiful bike ride with friends or family. You can expect temperatures ranging from 5 to 10 degrees in the morning to somewhere between 20 and 25 in the afternoon, with a likelihood of dry weather and clear skies!
Cycle2city has been proud supporters of MS Brissie to the Bay since 2013, and will once again be participating in this wonderful event.
